It is not included in the list but make sure to consider Inkscape in the Favourite Graphics application category.

Inkscape has not be around that long but they have already made lots of progress and even created the Project.

Inkscape is excellent. Very useful when combined with Scribus ( ) for publisher-ready PDF's.

Video Software category?

With all of the great video processing applications now
on Linux, you need a category for them as well. From
mpeg2enc and transcode, to Xine and Mplayer, to avidemux
and Cinlerra, and even Blender and Maya, digital content
creation tools are in really great shape on Linux.

Some applications that need to be included in voters choice awards. 1. Maya 6 for Linux (it works flawslessly on allot of distributions). 2. SoftImage XSI and XSI Express v3.0 as well. These are two Linux apps that get used allot in Hollywood , and are way more user friendly, powerful, and easier to learn over free apps like Blender. Also 3. Cinepaint ( A good video editor and companion to Gimp) that has many contributions by the pro's in the field like ILM. I wish Alias would develop a Maya 6 PLE for Linux so that others can learn how to use this great app with Linux. Sure Maya isn't cheap, but it works better in Linux than Windows XP, and is mainly used in a Linux enviroment by professional CG artists.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
